Cheap hotels in Campo de' Fiori, Rome
The cafe-lined Campo de' Fiori sees fewer tourists than the Pantheon and Piazza Navona area directly to its north. In place of tourists, Campo de' Fiori is a prime hang-out zone for Rome's young hipsters. Crowds (including more than a few foreign exchange students) spill out of bars onto the Piazza at night.
The Piazza centers around a statue of dissident Giordano Bruno, burned at the stake in 1600 for his heretical ways. During the day, the area's great restaurants, fab little shops, and a weekday morning market take over. Rome's Jewish Ghetto is a short stroll away, down Via Giubbonari.
